Independent's 35 Books That Will Change How You See the World

To make the cut, each had to be a game changer in some way. That said, they did also have to be excellent in their own right, which is why we said Fifty Shades of Nay to some of history's more disappointing bestsellers.

(We've aimed for a range of genres, time periods and styles of text, including poetry, theatre and even the odd non-fiction. Any foreign literature without an easily accessible English translation was sadly excluded, as were all holy texts of world religions. No author was allowed to feature twice, but series or trilogies were accepted.)
